Chris Ingram; 14th February

I had an  email from Chris who was on Tory for the day on the 14th February;

"I went to Tory yesterday.  The sea was very rough but nothing was seen except a few Gannets and Kittiwakes, and single Fulmar and Guillemot.  There were 12 Tree Sparrows, 2 Blackbirds and a Redwing in Anton's garden and a Chiffchaff around the Generator building.  In the harbour were c.15 Purple Sandpipers and c.20 Eiders with another flock of c.30 offshore.  On the lake was a Whooper Swan and 2 Mute Swans.  Also a 1st year Iceland Gull on the beach.

Anton told me that single Chiffchaffs have wintered in the graveyard (presumably the one I saw) and in Grace's garden.  He says there have been 2 Glaucous Gulls around and a flock of geese he can't identify in the East End.  Apart from that, nothing else much."
